Talking Stars Podcast S01 E08: ‘Remakes’ – guest Becky, grad student in film, joins the discussion

When someone loves a film, do they tend to like or dislike the remake? Why? This is one of the questions we set out to answer in this episode. Becky, our resident film-music authority, joins us once again bringing her remakes to the table as we discuss more than 6 remakes on the show.

Talking Stars Recorded 7/22/2016 The movies:
Becky: Star Trek: Into Darkness, Ben Hur, Maleficient
Damien: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Cape Fear
Darren: Old Boy, The Departed
Damien: “This is a show on remakes so fittingly it has a new lead host. I say that tongue in cheek, I am leading today but our regular lead host Darren Lucas is here today as co-host.

Also, we have our esteemed film music authority back a second time as a guest: Becky from Music Film Central. Finally we are talking why we like the original or why we did or didn’t like the remake or both. Spoiler warning! It seems our podcast always has some form of spoiler. We are film critics discussing what works in films as well as what has worked for stars. For that remakes show1reason we suggest if you have not seen the films and don’t want to know spoilers, to press pause until you do.

Thank you! If there is anyone you would like us to cover leave a comment. Also, let us know if you’d like to be a guest on the show. Thanks to Becky for coming on the show! Becky has been in twice now! Hopefully we’ll be she’ll be able and willing to visit us much more. You can visit her blog at Film Music Central or read and follow her tweets at @filmusiccentral Becky is one of our favorite people 🙂
